Seahawks vs. Cardinals 2019 NFL Week 4 Odds, Game Info & Betting Pick
Posted by: Mike Davis
Last week was a stark reality check for the Seahawks. Facing a Saints team without starting quarterback Drew Brees Seattle suffered a stunning upset loss. The result was a pro football betting reminder about the danger of gamblers overreacting on injuries to key players. Specifically, New Orleans scored TD’s on a fumble recovery and punt return for the difference in the game. Arizona is over the sugar rush over first-round draft pick Kyler Murray is over. Indeed, the Cardinals are still one of the worst teams in the NFL. And Murray has already been sacked 16 times.
Seattle Seahawks Vs. Arizona Cardinals
Seattle is coming off a 33-27 home loss to the Saints. As a result, the Seahawks are now 2-1 straight up, 1-2 against the spread, and 2-1 over the total. Seattle ranks ninth in the NFL for total offense and 10th for scoring. By contrast, the defense ranks 11th overall but 25th for points allowed. Namely, Russell Wilson remains the best aspect of the Seahawks. Wilson inked a massive megabuck deal that looks worth it by all accounts. Of great concern is a supporting cast that may not be up to par for a deep playoff run.
Players to Watch: QB Russell Wilson (71% COMP, 901 YDS, 8.6 AVG, 7 TD, 0 INT, 8 SACKS, 119.6 RTG, 17 RSH, 81 YDS, 4.8 YPC, 2 TD), RB Chris Carson (45 RSH, 159 YDS, 3.5 AVG, 1 TD, 10 REC, 59 YDS, 5.9 YPC, 1 TD), WR Tyler Lockett (22 REC, 277 YDS, 12.6 AVG, 2 TD), TE Will Dissly (12 REC, 124 YDS, 10.3 YPC, 3 TD)
Starting with a record of 0-2-1 straight up, 2-1 against the spread and 2-1 over the total is the Cardinals status. Arizona is coming off a 38-20 home loss to the Panthers. Kyler Murray is certainly getting his “Welcome to the NFL” with a low passer rating and getting repeatedly sacked. Overall the Cardinals rank 25th for total offense and 18th for scoring offense. In the same way, the defense is 30th overall and 29th for points permitted. Fashion that losing college coach Kliff Kingsbury is getting a rude welcome to the pros. Arizona remains a hopeless wasteland.
Players to Watch: QB Kyler Murray (61% COMP, 830 YDS, 6.1 AVG, 4 TD, 3 INT, 16 SACK, 79.0 RTG, 14 RSH, 86 YDS, 6.1 YPC, 0 TD), RB David Johnson (36 RSH, 133 YDS, 3.7 YPC, 1 TD, 13 REC, 83 YDS, 6.4 YPC, 2 TD), WR Larry Fitzgerald (18 REC, 253 YDS, 14.1 YPC, 2 TD), WR Christian Kirk (20 REC, 205 YDS, 10.3 YPC, 0 TD), PK Zane Gonzalez (9-9 FG, 3-3 XP), LB Chandler Jones (9 TACKLES, 3 SACKS)

In this situation, the Seahawks will be motivated to atone for their sportsbook debacle against New Orleans. As mentioned earlier the Cardinals are dreadful against Seattle and the NFC West.
